King Charles will only speak out in response to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix docuseries for one particular reason, according to a royal expert.

With the new trailer for the second instalment of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix docuseries having dropped, with Harry taking aim at Prince William and highlighting 'institutional gaslighting' in the royal family, a royal expert has predicted that King Charles could speak out about one thing in particular.

While royal journalist Jennie Bond has said that King Charles is no doubt deeply unhappy about how the scenario is playing out, she has speculated that he won't make any public comment unless his wife is brought into things. 

"The three words that come to mind when I consider how the Royal Family must be feeling during the run up to the release of the next three episodes are despairing, dismayed and disappointed," she told OK!, adding, "They’ll be hurt and pained. Charles must be distraught that this is going on and on."

Jennie continued to say that Charles' ongoing reaction on the scenario is most likely going to remain as silence, "It’s really unlikely Charles will respond to Harry and Meghan’s documentary unless there is a direct hit on Camilla.

"He and his staff are well aware that if you comment on a story, it gives it legs. The best way to shut it down is silence. And Charles probably believes it more graceful and dignified to respond, if he’s going to, in private."

In the dramatic new teaser for the next three episodes of Harry & Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex can be heard saying, "I was being thrown to the wolves. I was being fed to the wolves."

Meanwhile, Harry can be seen beaming on a plane in a self-filmed video, telling the camera, "We are on the freedom flight," after he and Meghan publicly stepped back from their royal duties in 2020.

The bombshell footage also shows Harry confessing, "I wonder what would have happened to us had we not got out when we did."
